Well, the shoe is most certainly on the other foot now. Earlier this month, comic book nerds looked on in agony as video game nerds gallivanted about, enjoying all the delicious news they could drink being pumped out of Santa Monica. Now, it's video game nerds who have to press their noses up against the bakery window, watching the San Diego Comic-Con cake divided amongst the chubby, spandex clad revelers.

If you're a comic book fan who happens to have an Xbox 360, however, you're in luck, as Microsoft will be pumping panel discussions from the con, some video clips shown there and other goodies on to Marketplace. Like a doting housecat, intent on bringing every single mouse, rabbit, mole, vole, or horse head right into your house (sometimes, right into bed with you!), Microsoft is trying its darndest to bring anything that resembles a nerd convention right into your Xbox 360. It's great news if you're someone who considers themselves both a video game and comic book fan ... unfortunately we find your half-breed ways to be an abomination and we're going to have to ask you to leave the premises.
